As always with Cygnet the talent carries the show. Though I feel that the play itself held back at the end (the true details are much more disturbing than the musical's... continued

The music was not memorable but the play was well done; the acting was excellent, especially by the two stars of the play. However, the venue left A LOT to be desired!!!... continued

Excellent production! We were mesmerized. Brandon, who plays Leo Frank, is incredible.

No redeeming features to this bomb. The play was terribly disappointing. Performances were amateurish, the singing dreadful.

The theatre has a parking lot just for the
show-goers. Otherwise, OLD TOWN is a big place
and I found that getting directions first
was very helpful. If you wait to... continued

I loved the story, although it was depressing, but it didn't need to be a musical, and would have been a lot better if it had not been a musical! The performers were... continued

This type of musical drama, with every song designed to further the action, rather than entertain, is not my favorite type of musical. But the performances and... continued

Well done. Lead actor was brilliant!!! Definitely worth an evening in Old Town despite the fact that parking is a nightmare.

Such a powerful topic -- not a traditional subject of a musical and one that makes you want to go read more about the history of it after getting this first taste. Very... continued
